Class Notes:
Class to be offered as HyFlex. Students should register for 5052, 5054, and 5056. 5052, 5054, and 5056 will meet on Jan 20-21, Feb 17-18, Mar 17-18, Apr 14-15 and May 5-6 (Fri: 10:00 - 5:00, Sat: 8:30 - 4:30). http://classinfo.umn.edu/?cheng838+PA5056+Spring2023
Class Description:
Students will design a quantitative research study using existing publicly available survey data. They will obtain and analyze quantitative data using statistics and interpret the findings. Through this process they will learn to understand and communicate the essential elements of a quantitative research study, criticize statistical analyses, and evaluate the quality of evidence.
Who Should Take This Class?:
Only those who are admitted into the MPA or Public Affairs Leadership (PAL) certificate programs are eligible to register for this class.
Learning Objectives:
  • Expand personal leadership capacity by strengthening a sense of personal purpose, voice, agency, and experience in leading a group and communicating publicly about professional work.


  • Strengthen capacity for adaptive problem solving through reflective analysis of complex organizations, community conditions, programs, and policy networks.


  • Cultivate ability to engage effectively with others, while holding tension, by strengthening one's theoretical understanding and practical experience in instituting change.


  • Deepen understanding of program design and factors affecting implementation.


  • Learn strengths and limitations of quantitative and qualitative data analysis to inform decision-making.


  • Improve one's ability to collect, evaluate, and use research-based evidence in defining public policy concerns and making recommendations for improvements.


  • Enhance skills to connect with community and to confidently and productively engage with others in the context of diverse cultures, virtually and face-to-face.


  • Deepen understanding of social conditions and engage with complex dynamics of difference and diverse perspectives to strengthen public value.


  • Develop an appreciation of the value of "otherness" by establishing new relationships, gaining diverse perspectives, and creating professional networks in a trusting community of praxis.
